So, based on some comments throughout the day, I’ve made a revision to the site again. What I see on my monitor is now red, dark blue, white, and taupe. I don’t see the “olive green” any more. If you still see olive green on your monitor, let me know, so that I can do some re-shading.
As far as the column widths go, the main content area is 1000 pixels wide. A variable width template doesn’t work out for everyone. Sorry, but that was one of the complaints with the old template, so If you use a really wide screen at 1900px wide, then this is something you’re gonna just have to deal with.
For everyone else, 1000px seems like a good compromise, although I can go wider. I just don’t want to make people who are still using 1024×768 to have to scroll horizontally to see the whole page.
